Chelsea midfielder Kante: I know I'll be forward more under Sarri

Jamie Vardy got off the mark against Manchester United in Gameweek 1

Jamie Vardy got off the mark against Manchester United in Gameweek 1

While promoted Cardiff are yet to win this season, Sarri said they will provide a tough test.

"I don't know the situation, I have to speak to the doctor, I don't know if he will be able to play".

Chelsea will be confident of continuing their ideal winning start to 2018/19 when they host a struggling and winless Cardiff City at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.

Terry is unlikely to be returning to Stamford Bridge, for now, but he is working with the academy players at Chelsea's Cobham training ground as he seeks his coaching qualifications, with a long-term target in mind.

"If we want to take the points, we will need a very good performance tomorrow". However, he insists the Blues can not yet be considered a serious threat to champions Manchester City or current leaders Liverpool after finishing 30 points off the pace in fifth last season.

"John Terry is a fantastic player, a fantastic leader, he has got a lot to offer", Lampard is reported as saying in the Derby Telegraph.

"At the moment, I can answer Manchester City or Liverpool [are the contenders], he said. It will be a very hard game for everybody who plays Cardiff".

"Cardiff, in contrast, have not won yet but I don't think their manager Neil Warnock will be too concerned, even if they lose again on Saturday".

'Sarri has had a very impressive start to life managing Chelsea, ' the former Arsenal and England defender told Sportingbet.

However, asked if he would welcome him returning to the club where Terry remains a massive favourite among fans, the Italian replied: "Yes, of course".

"Mentally the match after the break is always very hard". I need to understand that in this position I will have to score to make a difference for the team.

"After considerable thought, I have chose to decline a contract offer from Spartak Moscow", Terry explained in a statement.
